2020 has been a very slow year for me
Even before COVID-19 hit, due to scheduling and other pressures, I had made the decision to cut back on my speaking engagements. But then COVID-19 hit and even the few I had put in to speak at were for the most part cancelled.
And it’s official, I will be speaking at PASS Summit this year! I will be talking on PowerShell for Beginners. I’m excited and looking forward to this. While I had hoped to do this in person, I’m still thrilled to have the opportunity to do this virtually!
Looking back I spoke at SQL Saturday Albany. This was an interesting talk since I gave it remotely and I had to add more on talking remotely.
On September 15th I gave a presentation on System Databases to the Denver User Group, again of course remotely.
2019 had been a busy year for me
SQL Saturday Virginia Beach – This was one of my favorite SQL Saturdays in awhile. Monica Rathbun and her crew did an amazing job. I was disappointed I couldn’t submit for 2020 due to scheduling and equally disappointed to learn because of COVID they had to cancel.
I later had the opportunity to come down and speak at one of their user group meetings.
I of course spoke at SQL Saturday Albany, NY – July 20th
Unfortunately, I got turned down for:
SQL Saturday Oslo, Norway – (this would be my second overseas one)
I will update as I get accepted (or rejected) and apply for more.
In the meantime, if you’re interested in me speaking at your office or event, please contact me.
In 2018 I spoke at:
SQL Saturday Manchester UK – Kicked off a family vacation to Europe. We had a wonderful time and despite the language barrier of English vs. American, I think my group enjoyed the talk and got a lot out of it. I had several come up to me afterwards with positive comments and feedback.
SQL Saturday Albany NY – where I was pleased to participate with he WIT panel.
Washington DC SQL User Group Meeting – Spoke about SQL Backups
SQL Saturday Washington DC – Closed out there year where my talk on SQ Server for under $200 was a huge success.
I hope you caught me at one of those.
